    Replacement power led for quadra 800

    Can anyone recommend a suitable one? I'm afraid that whatever generic led I buy will be way too bright. The original was very subtle and I really hate bright glary leds so I'd like the replacement to be similar... Thanks.

    Booting 9.2 on Cube with Encore ST 1.7 cpu...

    Is it possible? I am having no luck doing so. It will boot and load extensions, but freezes on the loading screen after the extensions have loaded before going to the desktop. With extensions disabled, it freezes in the same place just with no extensions loaded. I have the Sonnet firmware...

    G4 cube becomes unstable when ethernet is connected

    In this thread; https://68kmla.org/bb/index.php?threads/unexpected-surprise-in-a-g4-cube.38554/ I noted I was having problems with the machine locking up with a spinning beachball and had attributed it to disk problems. After a bit of tinkering I found out that the machine is actually rock...

    Unexpected surprise in a G4 cube...

    Bought a clean cube a little while ago on ebay, came with a really nice boxed 20" cinema display, and I was really pleased to get one in nice cosmetic condition. I have been struggling to get it to boot properly, I had to the point where it would boot an existing 9.2 installation to loading...

    G4 cube slot loader fix

    The slot loading dvd drive on my recently acquired cube was extremely sluggish to eject and would not inject fully without assisting the mechanism. I completely stripped it and cleaned and lubed the moving parts to no avail, and tried the trick to shrink the belt in boiling water that seems to...

    G4 Cube, power button led weirdness

    I recently picked up a nice Cube, was holding out for one with good plastics for a long time, and finally picked up a good one. It needs a little work, optical drive is dead, no hd, but it boots. One thing that has me stumped is the power button led. When I first turned it on, it started right...

    Quadra 800 - pressing a key locks up ADB

    Just recently got this machine up and running, been fine for a few weeks with intermittent use. Now it's developed a problem where pressing a key on the keyboard locks up the ADB - mouse and keyboard become unresponsive. If I reconnect both, then the mouse works again until I press a key on the...

    8100 Magnetek PSU - does the fan always run?

    I bought a used PSU (Magnetek 3390-20-001) from, I believe, an 8100 to replace the dead and unsalvageable PSU from a project Quadra 800 I have. It all works fine but the fan didn't run at all during my limited testing. Is the fan load/thermal operated on this PSU, or is mine faulty?

    ADB Mouse II works on one mac, not on another??

    Completely ordinary M2706 ADB Mouse II, completely dead on my Quadra 800, works perfectly on my Quadra 700. I have swapped it over multiple times to make sure. Another identical mouse and an adjustable keyboard both work perfectly on the Q800. Q800 is a project machine, have it laid out on the...

    Quadra 700 floppy

    The floppy drive on my Quadra 700 was extremely stiff to inject/eject, such that the eject motor was stalling while trying to eject and I had to assist it with a paperclip in the hole. I took it apart and cleaned and lubed the mechanism and it worked ok very briefly before the infamous gear...

    Clean installing OS 9 on a Powerbook G4 Ti 867

    Anyone able to steer me in the right direction? Having difficulty with this. I have tried a number of different 9.1/9.2/9.2.2 install media, including what I think is actual restore cd for this thing, albeit burned from image. All will boot, but the installer will not run - "This program cannot...
